jazz baby

 as we speak, i
can hear sanborn
and he soothes my aching heart

oh, i should have
been a singer
to escape this dreary part

no, the role of
the downtrodden
never suited me, it’s true

though i belt out
a great mezzo
and i love to sing it blue

ah, the artist!
she must suffer
to interpret each sad line

but the blues are much
more fun when
they’re someone else’ but mine
